A Singularly Marine & Fabulous Produce: the Cultures of Seaweed

This exhibit will be on view from June 16–December 3 in the museum’s Wattles Gallery.

Drawing together a wide range of media, and spanning European, American, and British examples, this major exhibition probes humankind’s fascination with seaweed across the nineteenth century and into today, tracking changing aesthetics and modes of representation while underscoring a continuous and unwavering interest in this “marine & fabulous produce,” as described by Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862).
